I’m in charge of: I get all those cute pups out the door for some exercise and the ever-important potty break. I also take care of all the critters while their humans are away from home.
My furry family: I’ve got a whole critter crew! I have three felines- Rodrigo, Rigamarole, and Wingnut. In addition, there are two bunnies scampering around the kitchen named Porthos and Cosettle, a hedgehog in the bedroom named Phinneus, and a pet mouse in the living room named Bacon. My boyfriend usually has a couple of aquatic-type animals as well.
Super power: I could brain storm this one for hours. Hmmm…maybe the ability to speak any language at will?
Best Thing Ever: I really love good food and drinks.
Hidden Talent: I can roller skate! I play roller derby in my free time.
Life Philosophy: Travel often, eat well, and snuggle the pups & kitties!
I’m in charge of: Not only do I give your pup a chance to poop while you’re away, I provide stimulation! By reinforcing pet parent training and changing up our walk routes often, your pup gets exercise for the body and mind…and nose!
My furry family: No pets right now. Sad face. I am new to Colorado and I wanted to be sure I have the schedule, environment, and a proper home for a pet to thrive in! I’ve got my eye on a Shiba Inu rescue for when the time is right!
My superpower would be: Ooooo…my favorite icebreaker question. I think I would choose invisibility to get to the bottom of Area 51 and expose the formula for Coca Cola…I’d also see a lot of free movies and concerts! If I could have two super powers, I would combine my invisibility with time travel to go back in time and watch the great artistic masters paint.
Best thing ever: Good food, live music, and the love of my wife. All three of those things wrapped together in varying daily quantities make me a generally pretty happy fellow.
Hidden Talent: The ability to flawlessly toss a poop bag into an open distant dumpster. Also, people tell me stuff. All the time. It’s weird.
Life Philosophy: Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life! Thanks for using Out-U-Go! and helping me live out my philosophy every day!!

Leona grew up on a horse farm in Maryland and still goes riding with her horse, Maggie. She is also an artist, mostly specializing in illustrations!

Hi there, I’m Liz, pet sitter extraordinaire covering Downers Grove! I’d like to introduce you to my furry family. I have a 7 year-old Chihuahua named Bigsby, who we call Bigs for short, a 4 year-old Yorki-Poo named Ella, and last but not least, there is my 9-month-old American Bulldog named Cooper.
Every day is an adventure with these three! My bulldog would definitely be the most social of the gang…we spend a lot of time at the dog park playing, running, and saying hi to every potential furry or human friend he sees.
As a joint decision, my furry family and I would declare the classic red Kong as our favorite toy! Each of my pups has their own size-appropriate Kong, and they go to town when I put their favorite snacks inside, like peanut butter, apple sauce, and pumpkin. Sometimes I freeze the filled Kong to make it last longer (shhhh… don’t tell them that!).
My pups also agree on having a favorite treat: they go absolutely bananas for Stella & Chewy’s Carnivore Crunch! We like to go back & forth between and try all the other flavors, too.
As cheesy at it may sound, the best gift I’ve ever received are my dogs! Their unconditional love is something that can never be replaced.
Thanks for taking the time to get to know me and my furbabies!
